San Clemente Blocks Open Discussion On Nuke Safety

In God We Trust
For the last four months we have been working to organize a  public meeting in San Clemente for the NRC, Nuclear Regulatory Commission to share it's findings after the disaster in Fukushima and to  create a public forum to inform residents in a 100 miles area of San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station (SONGS).

In an effort to make this meeting informative and balanced concerned groups such as ROSE, Residents Organized For Safe Environment, and San Clemente Green have requested their experts speak. Notable authorities such as Arnie Gunederson of Fairwinds Associates, an expert witness who has testified before Congress, Dan Hersh and others.

As soon as the NRC heard that Arnie Gundersun was coming the city manager decided to divide the meeting up into two days. Two days one week apart. The first meeting with NRC California Edison, the second day of course would be a chance for our experts to speak, one week later.

Of course the entire idea behind this meeting was to create a forum in which facts and science could be discussed in public by the experts. A chance for the public to decide. An experienced and independent moderator from the Women's League of Voters was offered to provide her services. This offer was declined.

So we are asking all of our friends in California who would like to see a fair and balanced approach to this meeting call the city manager and demand the meeting be held on one day so that people can hear both sides of this very important topic for our community and our state.

Leave a message if you have to.
